So last week I was at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ shooting the 3MR trigger system at their media event. I had a little mishap while I was there, which could have been worse had I not been wearing gloves. The back story is that I had my own personal [Read More…]
I offer my thanks the good folks at Stik-N-Shoot for their patience. This cool little light system has been in my possession, awaiting review, for quite a while. It seemed logical to wait until I could take it to the range and put it through its paces before [Read More…]
I am surprised that TFB has not talked about the Sub-2000. As far as I can search, not once. So lets take a look at this neat little folding pistol caliber carbine. For those who are not familiar with this weapon, It is chambered in 9mm or 40 S&W. Kel-Tec makes two [Read More…]
John Johnston of Ballistic Radio gave an update on shooting his FNS-9 longslide. Pretty impressive. 2201 shots fired and only 4 failures. One of the downsides to having something new? Not a lot of aftermarket support. Check out his review here.
Today on March 25th, 2014 I set out to test some PCP polymer cased ammo in some commonly available military rifles. I drug out a PTR-91 and an FN FAL with the ammo. I function tested each rifle with 40 rounds of Winchester 7.62×51 beforehand to make sure each gun [Read More…]
Over the years I’ve had some decent slings that did the job but never one I really was impressed with and did everything well. I imagine most of you have purchased slings based on looks, brand and such only to be disappointed by the performance. My biggest pet peeve [Read More…]
Hickok45 takes a look at two .308 battle rifles. The Springfield Socom 16 and the SCAR 17. When he compares the recoil, I concur. My SCAR17 recoil is so soft, it is like a smidgen higher than my AR-15 in .556.
One of the interesting products presented at the Big 3 East was the PDQ (pretty damn quick) ambi bolt release. Now we all know about the other after market bolt release products on the market such as the BAD lever. The PDQ is a more permanent solution. The PDQ really is [Read More…]
Great review of the PMR-30 and the philosophy on using it Check out what Herschel Smith thinks about his PMR-30
One Source Tactical is now selling a fantastic set of AUG accessories that are absolutely a must-have for any AUG shooter out there. For years, the Achilles’ heel of the AUG was that you were stuck with the fixed Zeiss optic, or an oddly raised (and short) rail on [Read More…]
When writers and companies get together at an event like the Big 3 there’s at least one day devoted to shooting. We took it a bit further at two days. The highlight of our shooting day was a special shooting event we were all curious about and left us really looking [Read More…]
Great review of the Sig P227 on Guns America. I only got a chance to hold the P227 at this past SHOT Show. It is surprisingly slender for a double stack 45. Click here for the review.
Here is an odd duck gun. The Dardick Model 1500. We had posted an interesting magazine fed Frankenruger revolver the other day. This is nothing like that one. It uses a proprietary polymer cased bullet that is triangular and called Trounds. They are fed into an internal [Read More…]
At a recent gun show in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I made an impulse purchase. The Kel-Tec PF9. I had been looking for a sub-compact pistol, and wanted something light, thin, and, most importantly, reliable. I had considered a Glock 26, but the shape was just too [Read More…]
I think it would be safe to say the majority of us enjoy shooting steel targets. On the other side of the coin there are those who don’t shoot steel and to be honest not without good reasons. There are several factors involved in shooting steel and being safe doing [Read More…]
Schroeder Bauman impressed me after my factory tour. Their knowledge, service, and dedication to craft was laudable. Now with a pistol in hand and plenty of ammo, I headed out to the range. Was the American Defender good enough to turn a proclaimed [Read More…]
Wow, another billet lower. It seems like every week a new company pops up with an AR-15 lower offering. At this point I think most of us are starting to experience lower fatigue. You are now probably wondering, why should you care about this one? I stumbled [Read More…]
A great offering from MWG is their IK-520 40 round magazines. The mags are imported from Bulgaria and cost the same as a 40 round Magpul magazine. From MWG’s website: Designed by renowned development engineer Ivan Kolev, designer of the Bulgarian high capacity [Read More…]
TFB previously covered pre-orders for SlideFire’s bump stock for the ubiquitous Ruger 10/22, but here I check out my first impressions of the conversion kit. It was super easy to convert my Ruger 10/22 and install the SlideFire SSAR-22 kit. It came with all the [Read More…]
Firearms are small investments that must be taken care of. One of the easiest ways to protect your investment is to simply clean your firearm. A tool that can greatly speed up the cleaning process are the RamRodz Gun Swabs from RamRodz, a division of Innovative Products [Read More…]
